- 2008 Danica Patrick became the first woman to win an Indy car race, defying decades of sexist thought and action by the Indy car racing sport.
Trish- The audiobook of The Witches Are Coming by Lindy West Socio-political commentary and comedy at it’s BEST because as you’re laughing, you also cringe as West gets right to the heart of it all. And Secret Diary of a Call Girl, for some high class, wonderful smut with dashes of funny and serious.
Jeremy- Has resumed his comic book reading and jumped into the story arc “House of X” and “Powers of X” that started in 2018. The story is weird, somewhat unfamiliar and a little bit aggravating, but it’s a fresh take. How far they go with it and what is the outcome for the long haul of the X-Men is up in the air. However, the graphic design of the info dumps in the book are stunning and show attention to detail. It’s worth checking out if you’re an X-Men fan.
Everybody has a strong opinion when it comes to their favorite portrayal of a hero, but none can compare to the tenacity of Batman. We focus on the cinematic universe despite Jeremy’s insistence that Adam West transcends all mediums. We also make sure to give a shout out to the amazing voice work of Kevin Conroy. But who is the best and who is the worst? We’ll tease you with our least favorites…
Trish’s Least Favorite: George Clooney and Val Kilmer (Sorry Val, I will always love you!)
Jeremy’s Least Favorite: Ben Affleck, Boston loves you, but I do not.
